A message from our Commodore Scott Duncanson,

Greetings Members,

There has been quite a lot of action at the club since my last update in June. The PYC Committee completed an almost seamless transition of the Restaurant and Bar which is now fully under club management and in July staged Asia’s largest Multihull only event the 2019 Multihull solutions Regatta. A lot of preparation and work went into both these projects and I’d like to thank all the PYC committee members for their work and support in what has been a very busy and time consuming period for club management.

I will start this update with some details of the restaurant transition in that after 7 years successful years we bid farewell to Kim Mitchell who quite simply did a magnificent job in building the Phuket Yacht Club restaurant from virtually nothing to the number 1 position on trip-advisor for the Chalong Bay area. Kim has started his new business in Nai Harn and by all accounts is doing very well. On behalf of all our members I will take this opportunity to wish him success and prosperity with his new venture. The restaurant transition took place just before our biggest event of the year and I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said I wasn’t quite concerned about our ability to deliver the great food, beverage and service our members have become accustomed too. Fortunately most of the staff elected to stay on at the club and they have done an excellent job in maintaining and even improving the quality, service level, great tasting food and of course the famous PYC smiles. We welcomed a new cashier / supervisor in Khun Ohm and it must be mentioned she has settled in very well and performing admirably in her new role

For those who regularly frequent the club you will have notice the garden is looking better than ever largely thanks to the very green hands of June Carwardine. It was a very tough job consisting of many hours of removing potting and trimming plants not to mention battling some really nasty red-ants and wasps. Thank you June, your efforts are much appreciated. Still on the subject of house I’m sure many members are wondering what the committee’s plans are for the restaurant in the future.

In short the outsource vs. insource model is a very difficult decision and with very little, if any revenue details of past years, it was / is nearly impossible to make an informed, financially based decision that is best for the club and most importantly our members. For now I’m pleased to advise the restaurant will remain under club management until we have an improved understanding of exactly how profitable … or not... the business is. I expect to be able to update again in November when we have gathered more financial data and information and in the meantime hope that all members will support the club as usual in all future planned activities and events. Edwin is playing guitar every Sunday afternoon so please come on by for a long lunch and some very refreshing beverages. The wine list has been extensively upgraded with a flavour and most importantly a price-point for everyone..

The 2019 Multihull Solutions Regatta was another great success and while slightly down on participant numbers this year, from a sponsorship and organization perspective was the strongest yet. I guess after a decade of operating this regatta the club is becoming quite good at it and even with less participants still managed a modest operating profit which is great news. The competition was intense and it’s fantastic to see the OMR multihull fleet now consisting of some quite hi-performance platforms. Rumours abound of yet another boat soon arrive on Phuket’s sunny shores but more on that as more concrete new comes to hand. I know I thanked all the MHSR sponsors during the regatta but will take this opportunity to list them again as we would not be able to operate without them.

To sign off a reminder that the next Family Fun Day to Koh Lon is scheduled for Saturday 21st of September at Cruiser Island Resort, Koh Lon. club Calendar and why not sign up for the PYC News Letter.
